All pictures were taken at the Yippie Cafe on Bleecker St NYC. The Yippie cafe has been the center of activism since the sixties and still is today. These are some of the people that I meet there after shooting Birgitta Jónsdóttir there for the Guardian. A member of the Icelandic parliament and responsible for the release of the collateral murder video to the world through the wiki leaks network.
Andy Stepanian served 3 years in federal jail for protesting animal cruelty, mainly on the internet. The case was based around a company that tested cleaning products on cats and dogs and the time served was based on the cost to the company through spreading his ideas online. He said that his ideas were based on a teaching that if you took care of the smallest creatures on the earth then our problems would be put into perspective.
